I have no friends in real life who are mine and not associates of my wife. All my friends are over the net or the phone. I wouldn’t trade them for the world, but there’s something to be said about being able to meet up with someone face-to-face instead.
Right now I’m trying to work on socializing myself. My interpersonal skills are somewhat lacking. I’m picky about who I befriend, and I don’t do drama too well. The standard way of meeting people - going out - is not something that’s easy for me. I don’t want to join a book club or hang around some shitty bar. I don’t drink alcohol, and the only drink I’m interested in is a soda. I don’t want to go to college, and I feel rather unambitious. You know, the pesky negative symptoms.
Ideas on how to get out and meet people? How can I get the upper hand on this?
